What fuel consumption is do you get with your gas ZTR's?
Gravely 260Z, 25hp Kawasaki, and mulch kits I get right at 1.2 gph.
Thats about what Im getting on my 23hp Kawasaki. I am wanting to switch to a diesel machine
I think it's a little bit like a Lamborghini, I am sure the odd owner knows the mpg but it's just not a concern...
I get around 2gph on mine for what it's worth she'll swallow 20- 30 bucks at the end of a day...
But fuel consumption isn't a real concern on a hog, or it shouldn't be.
Wb's otoh, a gear drive Toro?
I can do 10 lawns on a 5 gallon tank, thou once in 6 years I did actually run out of gas (but made it through the last 10 minutes with some 2-cycler mix lol).
I only use about 1/3 a gallon of diesel an hour with a Kubota G1800 AWS. I am thinking about a ZTR, and the size I want are almost all gas. Looks as if my fuel consumption would tripple in cost.
Like I said, I am looking to switch for that reason, AND the life of diesel motors. I wonder if anyone has a TORO 580D with the kubota diesel
My 737 with the 23 kaw. uses about a gallon in 1.1 hour. I have never checked my 19 kaw. on the exmark but know its better than the 23.
I don't know about how much fuel but I can tell you the exmark I used to run which was diesel would run an 8 hour day and only use 3 gallons. My gassers all run about 1 gallon an hour funny that even includes my plow truck go figure
